Europa United are proud to announce that we have teamed up with the organisers of the March For Europe Campaign which will culminate in a rally in Rome on March the 25th.

For the  past few years, Europe and in particular, the EU has been under tremendous pressure from anti – EU and right wing nationalist elements who are using the democratic system to undermine the peace and unity that Europeans have enjoyed for almost 60 years since the signing of the Treaty of Rome which was signed on the 25th of March in 1957.

As a response to the current wave of anti EU agenda, a number of groups and organisations have gathered together under the March For Europe banner and will meet in Rome where they will call on the Heads of State and Government who are meeting in the Italian capital city on 25th March 2017, to approve a roadmap to relaunch and complete Europe’s economic and political unity. Those involved include the Union of European Federalists, Europeístas, European Alternatives and Stand Up For Europe. For a full list of partners in this movement, please follow this link.

The many partner groups who are supporting March for Europe

 

We at Europe United have always had a keen interest in the idea of a federalist union of Europe and although we do believe that any kind of federalist option will have a difficult road to becoming a real choice for the future of Europe, we believe that it is an option that should be explored more extensively.

It is only through unity, can the united Europe model survive. It’s time to bury the hatchet and start working together towards a common goal of first saving the EU and then strengthening the common bonds that bind us.

And for this reason we are delighted to support this movement and will encourage others to explore what March For Europe is all about. Please join us on our Facebook page or Twitter feed for regular updates, articles and news on the run up to this exciting day which will see many meetings rallies and marches across the entire continent.
